I had a pretty nice weekend besides the fact that I am going through this stupid bout of depression.
Chris came home from New Jersey on Thursday and surprised me with a nice new necklace from Tiffany's & Co. It is very cute and very unexpected. I would have been happy with a great big kiss. We went out to La Fuentes, the best Mexican food in Milwaukee, and I got drunk. Then we came home and I drank some more.
On Friday we went to go check out his soon to be new motorcycle. It is very cool, a Ducati Monster 695, and I am excited for him. We did some geocaching (my idea), saw the Indiana Jones movie and went out to eat, again, with his parents. I got a nice 13x9 pan to make brownies, my current 13x9 pan is all gunked up from over fried potatoes, and also a food dehydrator from Chris' Momma. I am excited to use it. Perhaps more excited than a person should be. We came home and it was sort of late and I don't remember what I did.
Saturday was the Summer Solstice music festival here in Milwaukee. I saw my friend Kelly there and we ate good ice cream but it was kind of boring. Perhaps if I was drinking it would have been more fun. Oh yeah, and before that I started making a dress. I needed to do some math to figure out some stuff so chris helped me out. I'm glad he helped me. Although we still did something wrong. It was ok though. We went to bed early because we had to wake up early on Sunday.
Sunday we went out to Road America, the race track up by Elkhart Lake, to see the June Sprints. It was really neat and it's fun to see these crazy fast cars. Unfortunately the race car driver we were with crashed in the last lap. He's ok but his car is not ok at all. Crashing while going 135 mph in a formula continental car, which looks like a small formula 1 car, will do that though. Here are two pictures that show a tiny bit of the damage:
This is the front of the car. When the driver is in the car their feet and legs are pushed all the way to the front of the car. The gas and brake pedals are in that space in front of the shocks. There is usually a nose piece over this, but it's all cracked now.
This is a picture of the steering column with a giant crack in it.
I don't think anyone who reads this cares about race cars but I do. Anyway, after Norton, the driver, came back to the Paddock we helped clean up and made sure he was ok and then we went home. I told my friend Kelly I would go to Church with her so I did that when I got home. I'm not really down with church, but it was a nice service and all. We then had dinner at my house.
Today I finished my dress. It's pretty cute and summery. It's called an 'infinity dress' because you can wear it a lot of different ways. Here are some pictures-
this is the back of the first one.
Front - this is how I am wearing it now.
and the back. I actually tucked the strings in and it looks better.
My hair is a mess, my mirror is dirty, and I am extremely unphotogenic. It's also not very flattering for my itty bitty tiities, but I don't care. AND those styles look better if I take more than a minute to throw them together. Anyways, I like it and I am glad it turned out. I want to make another one.
I have an interview tomorrow and I'm nervous. Hopefully it'll work out. I am going to go get an application at some little boutique in Shorewood that's hiring. I guess time will only tell. I'm thinking I don't even want a car anymore.
Remember my last life lesson where I said to make sure you take the cup out of the wash before drying.. well I forgot to. I felt like a retard but likely it was fine. I am going to go load the dishwasher now.Life Lesson #10-
Before you cook grilled cheese heat up your pan a little bit. Then, when you put it on the pan, cover the sandwich with a sauce pan lid or other lid. It melts the cheese faster. I do make the best grilled cheese. Actually, second best. My dad makes the #1 grilled cheese.
